The actions BFPCA and local communities have taken to date rely on individuals volunteering their time to lodge complaints to Brisbane Airport and Airservices, make submissions to the ANO, and write to our elected representatives. However, now is the time to amplify our voices and scale up the community pressure on Brisbane Airport and Airservices in order to demand change. We demand a new Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), for a Sydney-style curfew, as well as a total cap on the number of flight movements over residential areas.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the BFPCA Flight Path Noise Fighting Fund. With your help, we are able to amplify and boost our impact. As promised, BFPCA have been planning additional actions and exploring further appeals pathways to bring about change. One of these is giving our community the option to visually express our concerns and demands on corflute yard signs across our neighbourhoods and suburbs.
The yard sign corflutes are printed double-sided and come in two designs: The front always features the main BFPCA slogan “People before Planes.” The back of design A calls for a new Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The back of design B demands a curfew for Brisbane.
Before you submit your order, we kindly ask that you contribute to the BFPCA Flight Path Noise Fighting Fund with a modest donation equivalent to the cost of the yard sign ($12 each). If you have already donated, thank you! Please note that the display of the yard signs is your responsibility, and we remind those living in strata title that permission usually has to be sought first: owner-occupiers require approval from their body corporate, and tenants require approval from their letting agent or owner.
If you would like to display a yard sign at your home, please complete the form below. BFPCA offer max. of two yard signs per household. Once the form is submitted, we will be in touch with you to advise of pick-up methods and collection locations and times. We intend to offer weekend collection from markets in suburbs nearby – subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
